KEMSA Board New Chairperson Appointed: Mercy Chao Mwandime.

President Uhuru Kenyatta has appointed Mercy Chao Mwandime as Chairperson of KEMSA Board of Directors for a period of 3 years.

President Uhuru Kenyatta revoked the appointment of Kembi Gitura as Chairperson although the latter had in March this year been appointed as the new Communication Authority board chairman in a Gazette notice dated 28th April 2021.

A petitioner however challenged the appointment at the Employment and Labour Relations Court arguing that the president failed to form a select panel to conduct the recruitment of the board’s chairman as required by law.

Health CS Mutahi Kagwe appointed Capt, (Rtd) Lawrence Wahome, Robert Nyarango, Terry Kiunge Ramadhani and Lincoln Nyaga Kinyua as members of the Board of Directors KEMSA for a period of 3 years in the same Gazette notice.

In addition, the appointments of Timothy Mwololo, Bibiana K Njue, Joel Onsare Gesuka, and Dorothy Atieno Aywak were revoked.

The changes at KEMSA Board come amid ongoing scrutiny on the operations at the Authority following claims of corruption and misappropriation of funds related to COVID-19 supplies.
